Battlestar Galactica - The Captains Hand

Epsiode Synopsis

Capt. Lee Adama ( Apollo ) wakes up from his slumber revealing he has at last got together romantically with Petty Officer Dualla.

A recon Colonial Raptor group are on a normal reconnaisance mission when they disappear. Lt. Kara Thrace ( Starbuck ) is tasked by Barry Garner, the new Captain of the BattlestarPegasus 2003 to investigate why after not knowing what the hell had happened. Starbuck returns to her group and tells them off for not telling her about the missing.

Onboard Battlestar Galactica, Cpl. Tyrol discovers a stowaway in some cargo, the female stowaway wishes to see Dr. Cottle as she wants an abortion. The female is a member of the Gemenon community where abortion is rejected as life begins at conception. This episode deals with the thorny issue of abortion of womens rights and the rights of the unborn. A Gemenon representative petitions President Laura Roslin to return the woman but Laura decides to hold out.

A group of fighters from Pegasus try to track the crew of the missing raptors and they believe the crafts went off in search of a distress call. Garner wants to take the Pegasus to investigate but both Capt. Lee Adama ( Apollo ) and his father, Commander William Adama both disagree. In the end, Garner overrules Lee and takes the ship to where the signals are coming. The signals are a trap with three Cylon Basestar lying in wait.

The Pegasus incurs a large amount of damage including damage to the air pressure which if its not fixed, could result in the death and destruction of the Pegasus. Garner relieves himself of duty to fix the air hole and leaves Lee Adama in command to deal with the Cylons. Adama orders the Pegasus to concentrate its power on one of the basestars and destroys it. Garner is able to fix the air hole and the Pegasus is able to escape. Sadly, Garner dies due to lack of oxygen.

Lee is given command of the Pegasus.

Also in the epsiode, Tom Zarek persuades Dr. Gaius Baltar to run for President as no one would vote for someone who was once a terrorist. It also marks the first appearance of Tory Foster, the election adviser of the President Laura Roslin.
